 Introducing...Puma 



 Introducing...PUMA! 

* 1st APPEARANCE "PUMA" (Thomas Fireheart)

While the Black Cat takes photos from above, Spider-Man tackles a warehouse fencing operation for the Rose. Back home, Peter cannot shake a constant lethargy. He finds his old spare costume but leaves it in the closet. Once he sleeps, his alien costume engulfs him and takes him web-swinging. The next morning, the Rose, angry that Spidey disrupted his fencing business, makes a call to Thomas Fireheart who, as Puma, is hunting in the New Mexican desert. At the Bugle, Peter runs into MJ who tells him she has landed a regular modeling job. He turns down her offer to celebrate, but she and Betty go out to chat about Pete.

Fireheart arrives in New York and accepts Rose's challenge to assassinate Spider-Man. Becoming Puma, he tracks Spidey's scent and, finding him, throws a chimney pipe that Spidey, lost in thought, barely avoids, separating his shoulder in the subsequent fall. He resets his arm but passes out from the pain as Puma closes in for the kill.
